About Me

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am 28 years old. I live in the south of England, where I have lived my whole life.

I've been a member of Swapbot for years now and yet I still don’t really know what to write in this section.

I suffer from a condition called Selective Mutism, which is a severe anxiety disorder that affects communication. It mostly affects verbal communication, however, it does also mean I can struggle with written communication. I’d love to hear from anyone else who suffers from it, as it doesn’t seem as commonly known in adults. I also suffer from other physical and mental health issues, and crafting/swapping is a great help/distraction

Important & Updates

  • I rate as soon as I receive a swap, so if I haven’t rated yet, it’s hopefully just because mail can be a bit slow. The latter also applies to swaps I’ve sent.. if you haven’t received a swap from me, please message before rating

  • I understand life can get in the way, so if you’re going to send a swap late, just pop me a message and I won’t rate down because of it. However, if you send late (anything that’s 2+ days after the deadline) and don’t bother letting me know, I’ll have to rate down

  • Where possible, I would prefer to receive envelopes that aren’t completely covered in sellotape/clear tape (with the exception of envelopes that have washi on, because I can peel the sellotape off of it), as I like to use parts of the envelopes in other crafts, and recycle the rest

  • Please DO NOT send loose glitter or items with flaky glitter. They will end up being discarded. It’s on my dislikes, but I seem to be receiving more as more of it lately

  • Unless a swap involves sending one, I would rather not receive postcards of places. I don’t use them

Comment: Wow this package really seems to have made the trip around the world as it finally has landed at my door! I am loving all the cute bits and pieces you have included for me....I can tell you have read my profile and I really appreciate that. The little jam stickers are too cute and of course the Winnie the Pooh postcard is my favourite but everything you included goes very well with my style so I am looking forward to using them in my journal and such!

Hi Lauren, thank you for the lovely and joyful LSRU August wishes you sent. I will enjoy using them in my journals and making hand crafted bookmarks. Each wish was very thoughtful and my favorite was the cat photo. Every little creature has a secret message!
